, with businesses, entrepreneurs, state government, all working economy was brought low by the gross irresponsibility by those on wall street. as a result we have suffered 4 years of recession, with almost 300,000 people in washington looking for work. too many of our families are on the brink of losing their home. parents lie awake at night wondering how they can provide for their children's future. but we remain an optimistic state, a visionary state and an innovative state. time has not dimmed and the recession has not diminished our thirst for innovation and our talent for technological growth. we are the most creative, entrepreneurial group of business men and women, scientists, educators and workers on the planet. companies like silicon energy in marysville are leading the world with some of the most durable solar cells ever built. janicki industries in sedro- wooley is driving innovation in aerospace. valve, a software company in bellevue has grown into a worldwide leader in interactive entertainment. and in grays harbor an across- the-board effort led to the re- opening of th
majority in the house. that is a governing majority. he's going to have it on immigration and also on the debt ceiling. not sure he's going to have it on guns, but he's going to drive the really hard-line republicans crazy because he's going to be able to break off 40 or 50 of them for all these other things. chris: that seems to be true as much as the opposition is hotter and perhaps hardening out there on the right. it does seem that the center right and the center are in play and obama is making his move toward them successfully. >> their governing philosophy coming in is that the fever would break among the tea party folks, among the hard right, and also that just folks in the house would sort of move to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to figure out wait forward. i think the president was smart to step into these debates early and often
of tripartheid branches that notably do not have enough power to govern alone. madisonian austin. or four congresses have been the worst in the history of united states of the total abandonment of the check and balance. fact he is by letting court liberal and democratic values. the republicans took that same position under bush says they are silent. the result is, we have now check on that authority. to make matters worse, the court system has largely been taken offline. when president obama said that he can define whether something is a war and therefore circumvent congress and intervene in the libyan civil about intervening in syria -- i went to the core with members of congress and the challenge a democrat and republican and these are the good members. we said you are circumventing a clear requirement of the constitution. we could not get a hearing because the courts of limited standing, as it is called. there are now many constitutional violations that cannot be subject to judicial review because no one has standing. we have a latent violations of the constitution and we literally can
to the government can become prohibitive at times. so at life technologies what we've done is we try to focus our investments on technology that while the technology itself may be expensive, if you look holistically at the total cost of that patient event, it's significantly reducing the overall cost. let me tell you what i mean by that. if you have an $80,000 cancer drug regiment that only works in 25 percent of the patients, if we run a thousand dollar test and pick the 80% that don't receive benefit from that drug, not only do we spare the patient the side effects, we save health care a tremendous amount of cost. the administration, the obama administration a few years ago when we were in the throes of trying to figure out what we were going to do about health care, they used to quote some data, that $70 billion in 2008 was spent on oncology drugs and somewhere between 20 and 25 billion had no impact on the patient. so if we were to spend three billion in these amazing test capabilities to pick the 25 billion that wasn't going to respond, you save the overall health care costs. so we really ar
government workers like teachers, firefighters, public administrators. time now for lou dobbs. >> one hates to lose the public administrators and one wonders how the nation will be administered without them. it is an interesting story. it is counter to conventional views and expectations of most people. we have been watching the battles at the national labor relations board. we know that the president has stacked it with his allies and em baa stairs to the marketplace, and there is this expectation that the powerful organization fl-cio, the service employees union, the teachers unions are just growing and growing, which they had been until last year. we started to see the impact of those local cuts in budgets. this government, this administration, pumped, as you recall in the stimulus package, hundreds of billions of dollars into the hiring of what had been traditionally union jobs, teachers, police, you name it. that's over. what we are seeing now is the market place begins to work. now, as we look at how dramatic these reductions are, basically 6.5% membership in the private sector tells
last night. plus, the world economic forum, the most powerful names in business and government gathering in davos, switzerland. wednesday, january 23, 2013. and "squawk box" begins right now. ♪ >>> welcome to "squawk box" on cnbc, i'm becky quick with ross westgate. andrew is reporting from switzerland. that's why we've got the mountain music. we'll get to andrew in a moment. first, the top stories. the common theme here quarterly results, shares of google getting a boost. earnings and revenue topping consensus and perhaps more important metrics, revenue from google's core internet business. it outpaced many analysts' expectations. advertising rates fell less than in proves periods. as you see, the stock was up -- this morning up almost 5% in the premarket. ibm shares jumping after the bell. earnings and revenue beating the street, as well. the world's largest technology services company offering a better than expected outlook for 2013. that stock, as you see, up by 4% in the premarket. also, we had advanced microdevices. it came in with a smaller than expected loss in the fo
's gun-control proposals. while the government has come out against the plan, the numbers are pretty stark. 53% are favorable. 41%, unfavorable. more interesting as you go into the poll, the favorables are much more intense than the unfavorables. which means that we've heard for some time, richard wolffe, you know, the gun owners are so intense, and they're the ones that are going to always make phone calls and they're the ones that are always going to be engaged. in this poll and i'm sure we'll see it in other polls, a majority of americans are more intense about passing some sane gun regulation than are those small groups of people that are going to fight the political death over assault weapons and being able to have high-capacity magazines. >> a couple of things. first of all, if you break down the individual proposals, the support is even higher, right? universal background checks, you get way higher than 50%. and those numbers reflect the president's own favorability right now which says this is the moment when he can actually push this through because his own numbers are so hi
ceiling. we don't want to shut down the government. so, it looks like republicans are fighting among themselves. so this debate is already underway in the republican party. >> yeah. the. >> the president understands this. that combined with the 332 electoral votes he got, i think he is in a stronger -- i think he is in a stronger position now than he has been probably in four years. so he has less incentive now to be mr. nice than he has in quite some time. i think we are seeing that. >> right. i was going to say, i think we see that he senses that as well. >> yeah. >> he feels that he is projecting it. i don't know whether -- i forget whether you were there the day he announced his measures on gun violence for example. >> yeah. >> that was straight o here is what we are going to do. whereas before on so many issues, they might say, you and i both heard robert gibbs and jay carney say we can't push for that because congress has to do it and we don't have the votes if congress. da-da. the assault weapons ban, right thing to do. join the conversation,
a volley and government. the democrats typically say, well, government can do this or can't do that ask so it's really a series of arguments over the role of government and the second thing i'm curious to know about is how tough they were in a pretty partisan atmosphere. he has gotten tougher over the past couple of years with the opposition. how feist you he is he during the speech. >> things people have picked up in this run up to this inauguration is that the president four years ago in his speech came tout and he actually made a comment about how he was going to to bring an end to the petty grievances and false promises in washington. now four years later was that a false promise? >> yes. i mean, the president, i think, understandably confident and an historic election and all of that perhaps overstated what could be done. this is one place where he seen having come fiercely short and it's in bringing that sense to washington of bipartisanship and of working together and overcoming partisanship and his defenders and supporters will say oh, the republicans have been intransient and smal

to discuss it they did reimburse the district of columbia government some $44 million for the last inauguration in 2009. that probably just scratches the surface of the cost the taxpayers are putting. if you look over the parade route the police presence is just unbelievable. there are probably police officers every 10 feet. i did some quick calculations, it is 1.6 miles from the capitol to the white house and with police interspersed that often on the parade route alone there are over 1700 police officers. that of course does not include the plainclothes guys filtering in and out of the crowd, the 40 or so police agencies including capitol police, secret service, national park police and police from surrounding jurisdictions who have come here to help out. we're told that the parade route now is closed off to all people because the parade route is filled up. however there are ticketed areas where there is still lots of room. i think a hunch maybe a third or half as many people are expected for inauguration as last one is probably right about right on. shep? shepard: thank you, sir
. they gave to us a republic, a government of and by and for the people, entrusting each generation to keep safe our founding creed. for more of the 200 years we have had. we have learned that no union founded on the principles of liberty and equality could survive half buried. we made ourselves a new and we vowed to move forward together. together we determined that a modern economy requires railroads and highways to see travel and commerce. schools and colleges to train our workers. together we discovered that a free market only works with your competition and fair play. together we resolve that a great nation must care for it the vulnerable and protect its people from life's worst hazards and misfortunes. to it all, we have never relinquished our skepticism of central authority. nor have we succumb to the fictions that ills can be cured through government alone. our celebration of a nation, and enterprise, our insistence on hard work and personal responsibility. these are constant in our character. we have always understood that when times change, so we do too. fidelity to our founding p
cut spending. if that means shut down the government, shut down the government. >> i think in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets
government budget balancing is hurting employment and will probably lead to more job losses in the near future. >> all right. let's take a look at the markets this morning. markets have been sitting at these record levels. you can see right now those dow futures pulling down by about 12 points. s&p futures are indicated slightly lower, as well. but the nasdaq is indicated higher. the dow jones transport sitting at an all-time high. other markets sitting at five-year highs. the big question is whether the dow jones industrial average follows suit. you're a huge transport. >> yeah, i am. that's all all-time highs. >> all-time high. oil prices, you can take a look. you'll see right now is down by about 2 cents to 95.54. the ten-year note that had been coming down the yields last week a little bit, you can see the yield right now is at 1.877%. the dollar this morning after the euro picked up strength last week, the dollar is stronger against the euro and the yen and the pound. right now, dollar/yen is at 88.79. gold prices this morning up about $5.80. $1,6933. >>> german chancellor angela m

governments are moving the other way. according to the guttmacher institute which follows the trends 19 states last year passed a total of 43 provisions aimed at restricts access to abortion including laws that impose mandatory unnecessary ultrasound procedures on women seeking abortions including the invasive transvaginal procedure. laws providing abortion providers make fetal heart beats audible prior to procedures. restrictive regulations affecting abortion providers. laws that ban abortion prior to fetal viability and attempts to ban abortion coverage in afor thible care act exchanges. for more on the present and future of roe v. wade i'm happy to be joined by congresswoman karen bass, democrat of california. >> thanks for having me on. >> john: the latest polls show a majority of americans support abortion rights in all or most cases. to you does this represent a turning point in this debate or has it been this way for awhile? >> i think it has been this way for awhile. i think there is a whole generation of women who have grown up understanding that a woman has a right to choose. so why

. reinvigorating a mature nation means giving government to give people the tools to compete but then opening up a wide field so they do so ruak cowsly creatively. it means spending more here but de regulating more there. it means facing the fact we do have to choose between current benefits to seniors and investments in our future, and that to pretend we don't face that choice as obama did is effectively to sacrifice the future to the past. >> jonathan, first, what do you think of this speech and secondly, what do you think of david's column? >> i thought the president's speech was terrific, a progressive vision for the country. the guy won twice and ran on all the things he talked about yesterday, inclusion, balanced approach to the nation's problems. when it comes to david brooks' column, as mika was reading, i was thinking, how is that different from what the president actually said? i mean, he's talking about how, you know, what he wants to do is what he's been saying all along, a balanced approach. we have to take care of our seniors and take care of the middle class. we have to take care

years? >> i hope he's learned that you know, no one part of the government, really, gets it all done. and so, he's got to do a better job of reaching out to members of congress, across both -- across the aisle, to the republicans. and the republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. why aren't republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and these other things? they're silent. they need to speak out. this is the kind of intolerance i've been talking about, where these idiot presentations continue to be made. and you don't see the senior leadership of the party say, no, that's wrong. sometimes, by not speaking out, they're encouraging it. and the base keeps buying this stuff. and it's killing the base and party. 26% favorability rate for the party right now. that ought to be telling them something. you know? instead of attacking, whoever speaks, look in the mirror and say, how are we going to win the next election? >> and looking overseas, we know governments over the world will be pouring over this speech for every nuance, at this time,
